Hello.

I found a Segmentation fault bug in GhostScript.

Please confirm.

Thanks.

OS: Ubuntu 18.04 64bit

Steps to reproduce:
1. Download the .POC files.
2. Compile the source code with ASan.
3. Run following cmd.

gs  -dUseCIEColor -dFIXEDMEDIA -sOutputFile=tmp -sDEVICE=cljet5 $PoC

Here's ASAN report.

Comment 1 Ken Sharp 2019-10-26 14:00:13 UTC
It appears that this line:

    if ( (param_read_float_array(plist, "HWResolution", &fres) == 0) &&
          !is_supported_resolution(fres.data) )
        return_error(gs_error_rangecheck);

isn't catering for param_read_float_array() returning an error, which it does. Its apparently unable to read a HWResolution from the plist. This leads to a later divide-by-zero error.

        mediasize[0] = ((float)hwsize.data[0]) * 72 / fres.data[0];

Altering this line to:

    if ( param_read_float_array(plist, "HWResolution", &fres) != 0 ||
          !is_supported_resolution(fres.data) )
        return_error(gs_error_rangecheck);

throws an error instead. Not obvious to me if this should be an error though.
Comment 2 Ken Sharp 2019-10-26 16:15:48 UTC
Fixed (at least, it no longer seg faults) in commit 2c2dc335c212750e0fb8ae157063bc06cafa8d3e

I'm not absolutely certain this is the best solution, but a crash is bad, and this prevents that happening.
